In golf, a course consists of eighteen holes with a division by two making up a "front" and "back" nine. With most courses this division bears no meaning or distinguishing difference between the two nines other than a convenient way to route golfers back to the clubhouse at the turn.
Well if you'd like to make the turn and play a round where each nine feels like two entirely different courses, then no course exemplifies this feeling better than the Lakes Course at Twin Lakes in Fairfax Virginia.
After writing a spotlight article on the Oaks Course last year we knew we had to return and check out the facilities other course. The Lakes Course is the original course of the 36-hole facility and first opened in 1967. The combination of both courses makes for a very diverse pair fitting for every level of golfing ability.

A couple of weeks ago we attended the official grand opening of 1757 Golf Club in Ashburn Virginia. The course and property has gone through multiple transformations during a long and troubled gestation period but the overall outcome seems worth the wait.
The club features first-class facilities, a tour caliber practice area and a course with plenty of challenge and variety to entertain all skill levels.
If you haven't made your way out of town or just don't want to fight the traffic like us…then do yourself a favor and get out to 1757 Golf Club pronto!
During our trip to Wisp Resort in western Maryland last month we were invited to play a preview round of the font nine at Lodestone Golf Club. The private Hale Irwin design is scheduled to open next year and in our mind will vault itself as one of the best courses anywhere in the state.
The nine holes we played were truly amazing. Sitting atop Marsh Mountain the course is the highest elevated course in the state offering dramatic views, elevation changes and is one of the most beautifully designed courses we've had the pleasure to play anywhere.
